Big Mouth On View

Catch Big Mouth on View at Paradigm Talent Agency NYC Office through the end of February

This body of work is a collection of one sided conversations. As a woman, I find it is often easier to make my way in the world by keeping my mouth shut. To simply grin and bare it when haters, well meaning friends or co-workers say or do something incorrect or insensitive.

As a child, my father would say to me, “Better to be thought a fool than open your mouth and remove all doubt”. So in keeping my mouth shut, I learned, to be seen, and selectively heard.

With ‘Big Mouth’, I am all of it. The sass, the crass, the erudite and more than that, aware. Aware of the language used to quiet me down. To remind me of what is and most importantly, what isn’t being said.

Sneak Peak At New Small Works

Late Summer I started working on an edition of linocut mixed media self portrait collaged prints on paper. I used the fine print from my Tysabri infusion and boarding passes from my travels this year to mark the passage of time.

All works are 7″x5″ in a 10″x8″ mat ready to be framed.  These works are priced to move on my Shopify store at $75 each. A steal for an original piece of art, if you ask me. So if you have been meaning to get little something for yourself click here.

Meet Selfie Replicant

Selfie Replicant represents who I would be if I was a replicant in Ridley Scott’s 1982 cult classic, Blade Runner. Capturing the feel of the film it shows how my personality would emerge in the futuristic 2049 dystopia. Representing myself as one of the bioengineered androids found in the film I am revealing a hidden strength brought on by personal struggles within my own life. This selfie captures a side of me that is as potentially vindictive and powerful as it is dark and mysterious.

Dyslexia Series

When a colleague told me I am “pretty stupid for a smart person,” this series of work was my response.

I can’t spell and sometimes words get lost in my mouth but that doesn’t mean I am stupid. My brain processes information visually and sonically, letters and numbers are interchangeable. I think different, that is my super power.

Several pieces from Dyslexia Series are currently exhibiting at Jersey City Art & Studio  Tour’s  JCAST2016 Flagship Gallery from Oct 7th through Oct 23.  150 Pacific Avenue, Jersey City, NJ. The gallery is open weekends 12-6pm.

Let me know if you want to go. I’ll come meet you.
